An interesting post here on the upside to recession.  Joel Libava says that franchises increase when economies slow down.  The reasoning:  when the economy slows, people get laid off, and they think, “huh, maybe I’ll start that business my wife told me not to start” (or something like that).

But in the end Joel says everything will be okay.  The small business will survive.

I wonder what other potential upsides to recession there are?
